I’m frustrated at all of the finger pointing by the blue collar Republicans that shop at wal-mart. They are on the blame-obama bandwagon, unwilling to consider their own role (and mine – I go to wal-mart too) in creating this mess. With each purchase of unnaturally cheap foreign imports, a few pennies is transferred from our country to theirs. And as this trickle-out process continues, American factories close since their own output is no longer needed.
If, on the other hand, we had Fair Trade Relationships with these other countries, then purchasing these imports would not be a problem, as undoubtedly there would be a near-equal value of imports and exports.
